Description

Product Description

The classic guide to an unmedicated childbirth, fully revised for the twenty-first century—with updated information and attractive new illustrations and photos throughout. For women birthing vaginally, 90% of Bradley births are drug-free!

The Bradley Method®, used and praised by women for almost seventy years, prepares you for drug and surgery-free childbirth and puts you in control by providing the tools to navigate evidence-based care. Certified childbirth educator Susan McCutcheon, one of Dr. Bradley’s first students, now makes this natural approach to childbirth more accessible than ever. You will learn:

• Exercises and nutrition to get your body ready for birthing
• To defuse fear by understanding all aspects of laboring
• How to involve your partner as a birth coach and a fully engaged participant
• What’s driving the induction epidemic and how to avoid an unnecessary induction
• What’s driving the cesarean surgery epidemic and how to reduce your risk
• How to get the information you need to make informed decisions about your birth

“The Bradley Method’s simple objective, through relaxation, breathing, and visualization, is a birth free of the interventions frequently offered to women in the different stages of childbirth: fetal monitors, drug-induced labor, anesthesia, episiotomy, and Caesarean section. (Its) other defining feature, the husband’s active participation in the delivery, is critical to this overall goal of an intervention-free birth.”—Mothering

Review

“Instead of distracting yourself from the birth process...you are fully mindful and wholly engaged during Bradley’s method of natural childbirth.”— Natural Life

“Robert Bradley put power in patients’ hands, reducing the number of Caesarean sections and episiotomies he performed and playing up natural ways of making childbirth less painful.”—Slate

[Its] other defining feature, the husband’s active participation in the delivery, is critical to this overall goal of an intervention-free birth.”— Mothering

“I highly recommend not only the Bradley method, but specifically Susan McCutcheon''s book to all my pregnant patients regardless of whether their goal is a natural childbirth. Susan does a great job putting her years of experience and research into a readable evidenced based guide to prepare women and their coaches for pregnancy, labor, and birth. I am grateful for the way this book expanded my knowledge and empowered me and my wife for our births.”—Dr. Stephen Yip, D.O.

I bought this book earlier this year on my Kindle. It''s a great read. If you use this book and actually get down faithfully with it, I don''t think you would need to do classes. My husband and I were working and oh so busy that we barely had time to do this book. A word of advice though - you can never plan and know what labor will be like. The book was clear about that. I think the book can set you up for failure if you think your labor will be textbook, especially if you''ve never done it before and dont do natural. You just have to have a realistic expectation for your labor.
We were due May 23 and my water broke the evening of April 19, our son was born the next morning at 35 weeks, a late preterm baby. He was in the NICU and came home a week later. He''s a healthy wonderful boy but we didn''t expect any of that!

I wanted a natural childbirth and used the methods in this book. The hospital staff respected our wishes. But because our son was premature we had to take extra precautions since the water broke first. the doctor kept pushing pitocin on me, which I didn''t get because I knew I was dilating quick enough. I guess he didn''t think I was but when he returned an hour later I had gone from 3-10 centimeters and took about 15 minutes to push.
Overall, this book helped us understand labor, medical practices and gave my husband the support and knowledge he needed as well, especially if you want no meds in a hospital setting. My husband enjoyed reading this out loud to me! Looking back, this book was spot on with how the female body works in labor so I do highly recommend it. I just want families out there to be realistic and do what''s best for them. The most important thing is safety for them and for baby. I just hope that the book doesn''t make them feel completely wary of hospitals. We were pretty insecure about having a hospital birth but since he was premature we actually had an amazing experience with the hospital staff and our son''s health was taken care for. When it comes down to it, you can take the knowledge from this book, use it and improvise and just get your baby home! Good luck!

I appreciated the beginning info about the Bradley method but then the author starts giving her very strong anti-hospital opinions which can give the layperson the idea that Drs, nurses, and hospitals are evil and against you. I''m sorry but as a Doula and a nurse i know both sides and hospitals are not the enemy. I encourage all pregnant women and their partners to read multiple books on natural Birth and natural Hospital birth. It is possible and not all hospital and Drs are anti-natural birth which is what this author portrays. Homebirth has risks too so I didn''t appreciate her biased opinions that homebirth is the only way to have a natural birth. Educate yourself and advocate for yourself!

Okay. So I''m reviewing this before actually having given birth. As far as the content goes . . . it''s just like all the other birthing books--horribly biased and convinced they''re the only ones doing it "right," but with the same basic natural birthing principle of working with your body instead of against it. Useful exercises/positions, and I really like the concept of emotional signposts. Only about half of this book is useful and readable, though. The other half of it is either introductory or tearing down some other birth method or other. An entire chapter just to preach the evils of Lamaze? Give me a break. Anyway, it''s pretty easy to tell which chapters can be skipped and which deserve to be read. The ones that deserve to be read had the stuff about postures, relaxing, exercises, and emotional signposts. Sounds like useful stuff. Still would recommend, provided you focus more on the method and less on their criticisms of other methods.

I loved this book. I read a review during my pregnancy that recommended this along with Husband-Coached Childbirth by Robert A. Bradley. It was a great idea to get both books. The Bradley book was great for my husband and I to read, but I felt like it was mainly there to convince people to have a non-medical birth (which I already wanted). This book offers actual examples and exercises for birth. My favorite part was the various ways that natural birth can start. In the end, I had my natural waterbirth with husband and midwife helping. Reading this book was one of the most important ways I prepared for birth and I highly recommend it to all women :)

Update: I also reviewed this book during my second pregnancy and it helped me rest assured that I could have another natural birth like I wanted. My second baby was born at home in just 3 hours! (I had a waterbirth planned but there was no time for it) I was a little stressed when contractions first started, but with my husband''s help, I was able to stay calm. The midwife arrived with one hour left to go, but I could recall helpful illustrations from this book and I was empowered to know exactly what to do for a successful birth!

I bought this book because I was dead set on giving birth naturally but kept hearing negative comments from more experienced mothers. I was a first time mom, so what did I know about birth and not knowing scared me. I bought this book to inform myself of what to expect when dealing with pain, how my body works with me to give birth and what the baby is actively doing to come into this world. With having a supportive husband, doula and reading his book, I was able to step into the Labor & Delivery department confident with all the information I now know. The book is a bit outdated and bias towards natural birth but i got what I needed from it and was able to give birth naturally. PS. I have a new found respect for my mother who gave birth 3 times drug free!

I bought this book because a friend suggested it, and I am so thankful I did. It''s in a great format and I didn''t feel like I missed anything by getting the ebook! I started this read with an open mind and just wanted an idea of what natural birth could be like, since I am in Korea and was unable to take a birthing class or have a birth coach with me. In the end, we can never fully prepare ourselves for the pain of childbirth and all the details, especially in another country where I had pretty much no choice when it came to so many of the details surrounding labor and delivery. However, I decided to "roll with it", be grateful for the healthcare I had, and try to proceed with birth as naturally as I could. In the end, I was able to deliver naturally in a hospital. This book opened my eyes to so much and prepared me mentally!

I''ve been reading through 12 different pregnancy books ranging the gamut in methodology from AAP to Ina May. This book has been loaded with factual information, but it''s also succinct for how much it covers. It breaks down labor and delivery stages really well.

This is an essential book for childbirth. Even if you aren''t doing the natural thing this book prepares you for what you are going to feel when those contractions begin and gives great visualizations and descriptive scenarios of how you will feel and what you will need from your partner. This is the only book I have come back to for reference through each of my three children''s births.

Pros: Very comprehensive, informative (for a second time mother no less), and empowering for women aiming for a natural birth. I found this to be my favourite preparation tool leading up to a homebirth. Cons: I didn''t have the benefit of taking an in person or online class (wish it were a possibility) to complete the programme and I found the extraordinarily high level of involvement from the husband to be unrealistic in my experience. I also think the wording could be more sensitive to non traditional couples who have same sex partners or perhaps single mothers with designated "coaches". However all things considered I found this to be an excellent resource for women taking control of their bodies and birth experiences.
